MEET L5

When the Legendary Cathedral Quartet retired in December of 1999, Scott Fowler and Roger Bennett decided to continue the rich musical tradition of Southern Gospel Quartet singing. Legacy Five was organized and had their official debut in January 2000 in Atlanta, Georgia. Since that day, they have made a major mark on the Southern Gospel Music world. Immediately audiences responded overwhelmingly to their four-part harmony and their ability to effectively communicate the message of Christ. Since the quartet’s formation, they have established and maintained a firm place at the top of Christian music. 

Legacy Five has enjoyed more success in their short career than many groups experience in decades. In their first ten years, The Singing News Magazine, Southern Gospel music’s leading fan and trade publication, has nominated Legacy Five for some 75 Singing News fan awards. Year after year they are recognized as one of Gospel music’s favorite southern gospel groups. The Southern Gospel Music Association honored Legacy Five with Recording of the year and they have had 2 Dove Award nominations. 

Legacy Five has been featured on numerous video tapings of the Gaither and friends Homecoming Video series, which has sold multiple millions of copies worldwide. They have also appeared on In Touch, with Dr. Charles Stanley, as well as In Touch Ministries’ sponsored cruises. Legacy Five is also regulars at Dr. David Jeremiah’s Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California. Viewers across America have seen Legacy Five on TNN, TBN, Sky Angel, INSP, GMT, The Odyssey Network and a host of local channels. 

The rich four and five part harmony that Legacy Five has become noted for are the result of a masterful weaving together of five unique and versatile talents. Matt Fouch sings the bass, Bryan Walker sings the baritone, Scott Fowler sings the Lead, Lee Black sings the tenor and Josh Townsend is the group’s pianist 

Some 130 times a year, Legacy Five presents Gospel music in a way that has endeared them to audiences all across the United States and Canada.

The spirit of Roger Bennett remains with us. Our hero of the faith.

Each year, the month of March is warmly dedicated as “Remembering Roger Month.”  Roger was born March 10, 1959, in Strawberry, Arkansas.  He was raised in a Missionary Baptist home.  Roger got the job of his dreams when he joined the legendary Cathedral Quartet and served as their pianist/singer and songwriter for some 20 years! 

Following the retirement of the Cathedrals in December of 1999, Roger and fellow Cathedrals member Scott Fowler launched Legacy Five in January of 2000.  Although an excellent vocalist, Roger is best remembered as pianist – and often a comedian – for the Cathedrals and Legacy Five.  Roger received the Singing News Fan Award for Favorite Southern Gospel Pianist 14 years in a row (1993-2006). 

Songwriting was another forte’ of Roger Bennett.  Many of his songs appeared on the recordings of the Cathedrals, Legacy Five and several others.  His writing talent was not limited to just songs, however.  Roger was a contributing editor to the Singing News, writing “Midnight Meditations” and also wrote his very own book called “Midnight Meditations” that chronicled his life’s journey with cancer.  That book sold hundreds of thousands of copies and to this day remains a great source of encouragement and strength to those walking in their midnight hour.
